    Hi, i would like to customize my o3 white to be a lil heavier and considering using lead tape. i was just wondering if lead tape is removable, in the case that it is not to my liking

    yes, it is removable. just make sure to clean up the residue it leaves so there isn't any of that little weight on it.

    not only is it removable but it is also reusable. you can stick it on and off multiple times until the backing runs out of stick.

    If u want a real big piece of lead, u can go to a car-wheel rim shop where they have balancing weights for tires. A friend use that on the end of his racket (butt-cap) and it works well. It´s sticky as hell though!

    My local Sports Authority sells lead tape, and other local tennis shops. Big 5 for me doesn't though.
